KS3

Geography (KS3) at Box Hill School

Geog 4

The study of Geography stimulates an interest in and a sense of wonder about places.  It helps young people to make sense of a complex and dynamically changing world.  It explains where places are, how places and landscapes are formed, how people and their environments are interconnected.  It builds on pupil’s own experiences to investigate places at all scales, from personal to the global.

Geographical enquiry encourages questioning, investigation and critical thinking about issues affecting the world and people’s lives, now and in the future.  Fieldwork is an essential element of this.  Pupils learn to think spatially and use maps, visual images and new technologies to obtain, present and analyse information.  Geography inspires pupils to become global citizens by exploring their own place in the world, their values and their responsibilities to other people, to the environment and to the sustainability of the planet.
